Back home

Thursday, April 2 2009 5:57 pm, GMT+1h Laura

So my father has a new nose. He should have come home yesterday but he didn’t so he came home today. Everything was ok, pity I couldn’t see the doc operating him :( . There was also a kid and he seemed so brave :P and another one had to postpone the surgery because he was sick…

By the way, yesterday I uploaded the NCIS screencaps of the new episode which was better than the previous. But still not good enough to be back next season.

It seems that winter is back… it’s so cloudy and rainy! I hate rain X( it makes me sleepy :tired:

Later :P

New Theme!

Monday, March 30 2009 9:29 pm, GMT+1h Laura

What do you think of the new theme? I kinda like it ;) and I change the error page, too. If you want to see it just click here :D

And I revamped the links page which now is mantained by wordpress. I was finally able to put links in column… wasn’t that difficult but gosh! Took me a hell of a time to understand! Want a tutorial? Maybe I’ll make one ;)

Tomorrow is the big day, the hospital didn’t call this time to postpone :P wish my father luck!

See ya!

Translated Tutorial

Sunday, March 22 2009 2:11 pm, GMT+1h Laura

Yep, today I only translated ‘the tutorial’, will start to work on the code pretty soon.

This morning I’ve made lasagne (the real lasagne   :tongue:  ) but we won’t eat them for now… my mom froze them for when my dad’s in the hospital but it’s Friday and I said ‘but you can’t eat meat on Friday’ (not that I wouldn’t eat that seeing that I’m not religious) so we’re going to eat them on Saturday :-(( almost a week from now ;-(   ;-(  and now, after I’ve post here I’m going to eat a sweet shaped like a dove because it’s a traditional Italian Easter sweet ;) yummy! Oh and I found some chocolate eggs that are the end of the world!! They’re super yummy! Kinder is the brand (which is Italian not German!!)

And I added some new Waikiki’s (hamster) pictures.

And I have a new project, I usually look at my fave’s on Sunday and search for tutorials, brushes, textures etc which can be useful for me, so I thought ‘why don’t put them all in a post and once a week post it for you, too?’ So from next Sunday I will post a fave’s post and so on every Sunday (maybe I won’t sometimes, depends on whether I have time or not ;) ) Do you like the idea? So when you don’t know where to find resources you come here and look around ^_^

Later!

Need a new obsession

Wednesday, March 18 2009 2:17 pm, GMT+1h Laura

Ok, I’ve made the caps of the new episode even if it wasn’t worth it… so guys I need a new obsession because NCIS won’t be back in my fall schedule, it’s too boring and it’s not going where I’d like it to go… Have any TV-show to suggest?

I need to go out but when I come home I’m going to finish the textures and maybe begin the brushes. I won’t change all the caps because I will take them down if I’m really leaving NCIS (depends on the last anti-tiva episodes, sorry but I can’t call them tiva as the spoilers say if this is what is going to happen).

Later.

Happy Life

Tuesday, March 17 2009 10:07 am, GMT+1h Laura

Hey ya! How’s everyone? First of all thank you for emailing me about the layout, I’m happy you liked and and from popular demands I’m making a tutorial. Of course it will be similar to my theme #20 but not the same because I used Illustrator, too.

Right now I’m writing a letter to my pal Tanja, I don’t know if she reads this but if you do, wait for it! And I found out that they changed TV schedule again… Everything is like last post but CSI and CSI:NY are on Thursday instead of Wednesday so I can record both of them without borrowinf my dad’s dvd rec :D

Yesterday my father went to the presurgery I don’t know how surgeries are done in your countries but here you go to the hospital for all morning some days before the actual surgery, you have all the exams and then come home until the day of the surgery so you don’t stay a lot in the hospital. The surgery is on March 27. Can you believe that I didn’t go to Scotland to visit my friend at Christmas because of this surgery and then doctors call him three month later!!?? :( A person could die waiting for them…

Then I want to give you a link to some cute freebis @ Smashing Magazine the icons are so cute! Maybe I will use them is some future themes. And the cafe icons?? So wonderful for a coffee lover like me :P

Well that’s all for today, gotta go finish the letter ;)

Later!

Later –> I’ve just finished to revamp the textures display, now every ‘preview’ is linked to a different page with some details and download link of the pack, let me know if there are problems ;) . Tomorrow I will change the page where all the previews are and then do the same for the brushes :D and of course add three new texture packs :D

Good night, it’s 2230 here and first, tomorrow I have classes and then, tonight I need to wake up early to watch NCIS in internet (if I’m able to wake up… I will let you know tomorrow :P ).

Revamping tuts done

Sunday, March 15 2009 5:30 pm, GMT+1h Laura

So, what’s new in this beautiful Sunday? Yes, I’m out of my mind seeing that it’s cloudy…

As the title says, all tutorials are revamped meaning that they are written in wordpress and translated in Italian, except maybe for one which I will translate when I’ll totally change the English version and the paintshop pro ones which I didn’t import to WP and I think I won’t translate seeing that I don’t use the program anymore… Oh if anyone wants to buy it let me know ;)

Tomorrow is monday 8) and my father goes to the pre-surgery thingie, he will have surgery soon to his deviated nose. And tomorrow there’s Without a Trace, it should have been on Tuesday with RIS but they changed everything!! Now RIS is on wednesday with CSI :!: damn it!!

Can you believe I had an accident in the swimming pool?? Last friday I went to the swimming pool as always and when I enter my lane which was occupied by other three people, a man accidentally head-shouldered me. Because he was surpassing the one he had before because he was slow but he didn’t see me go into the pool :grin: It was kinda funny :p And then yesterday my neck hurt but I don’t know if it was caused by the accident or I slept bad (I think the second because he touched my shoulder, not my neck or head).

Well… going to think what to add after. Later.

Here again

Thursday, March 12 2009 10:25 am, GMT+1h Laura

Hey ya! Why I’m here if it’s Thursday and I have classes? Because I went to uni but the prof wasn’t there so I came home… Gosh three wasted hours!! (yes it take me one hour and a half to arrive to uni). What I’m going to do now? Well first I was able to adjust the calendar for each theme :D Now I’m going to change it a little bit more :P and then finish my new layout.

Oh I need to watch CSI:NY…

Later!

Later –> Watched CSI:NY, and gosh! it was awesome!! Why can’t NCIS be like that!??!! I think I’m going to switch back to CSI in May after the TV season ends… or at least I’ll switch if NCIS ends bad (meaning no pure-happy-non triangle-non tragic-tiva).

Later 2 –> So? Do you like the new theme? Quite springish eh? I think I’ve never made a theme so fast like today :P I’m improving ;)

Oh and I added two new polls, it’s the continued part of the first poll seeing that downloads and tutorials ‘won’ now I’d like to know which download you need and which tutorial :D

Exam passed part 2

Wednesday, March 11 2009 3:37 pm, GMT+1h Laura

Yep, you heard right, I passed Phisics II today and I’m quite happy! For this reason I began a new layout (because I’m happy, not because I passed the exam :P ). The design is read so take a lil’ pick:

Take a pick of theme #20

Yesterday was my mom’s birthday and my father gace her a big bouquet :D she was so happy! Yeah the idea was mine but the money was my dad’s :P

So now I go back to change the theme and I will try to implement the new clendar… agr! Why it works sometime and others not??

Later –> Found why the calendar didn’t work :grin: … Apparently it conflicts with ajax-comment-posting plugin so I deactivated it. Unfourtunatelly now the comment form doesn’t use ajax anymore… Now I need to change the Events calendar code to fit with my various themes because the one installed can be changed with only one theme… Will keep you updated :P

Exam passed (the writing part)

Monday, March 9 2009 12:51 pm, GMT+1h Laura

As the title says I passed the writing part of the exam. Now I have the oral part next wednesday, pray for me! I’m tired of studying phisics… and I liked once apon a time… but my favorite remains Maths… do you like maths?

As you see yesterday I downloaded another plugin for my wordpress, the random quote thingie; I tried to implement a calendar but it doesn’t work properly… and it’s not the wordpress version because it works on my test blog and it has the same version as here…

Now I’m upgrading Opera… let’s see if it works… Internet Explorer is still dead… I don’t know why but if I use it, it doesn’t let me into my email accounts! I click enter and it shuts down…

Well gotta go, I don’t know what I will do now, studying is out of question, I’m tired…

Later!

Almost done

Wednesday, March 4 2009 4:31 pm, GMT+1h Laura

Hey ya! Still not out of the hook (is this expression right?) meaning I still haven’t finished my exam because the oral part is next wednesday… Instead of one week, now it’s two weeks between the writing test and the oral test so still waiting to finish and still studying…

Happy birthday Matteo! My cousin :D not that he’s going to read my blog…

Last Sunday I went to my second cousin Sofia’s Baptism, she was so cute! I didn’t recall how a baptism was :P it was quite interesting ;) First the priest called the parents and asked what they wanted to name the baby, then some reading from the Bible, some Cross on the baby with parents and godparents’ fingers other than the priest’s ones :P and then the water on the head. Poor baby, she cryed a bit but only when the priest was away from her :o I mean when the priest was pouring water on her head she was silent… usually kids cry… Gah she was so cute, did I say that? Oh and I ate a lot during the refreshment… the cake was yummy :p So now she is a Christian :D or better a Catholic… don’t know if other branches of Christianity have Baptism… I know in Finland they have because my friend baptized her son ;)

As for school… well today I began the second semester and I have one corse: two hours on wednesday and two hours on thursday (why wednesday?? There’s NCIS on wednesday! Remember I’m not in America so I don’t watch it on TV but internet and I have to wait for people to put it online, that and I’m 6 hours from Washington D.C. so when it’s on in America it’s 0200 (or 2 a.m.) here…)

I renew both domain and hosting so now I’m good till 2010 with the domain (I can renew it for free only every year if I want more I need to pay so why renew it for more years when I can have it free the next? :P ) and till 2012 for hosting ;) and my space just went up high ;)

That’s all for today… I think it’s the longest post I posted :P

What’s new in the life of Laura?

Sunday, February 22 2009 6:07 pm, GMT+1h Laura

Well… last week my exam was postponed :( and I hate when that happens… But at least I could watch Bounce without waiting the afternoon… Pity it wasn’t that good… I think I will change TV-show as obbsession because NCIS is degressing…

Then I found this cute site where you can find/buy pets called whimpies and I really like it. You can see my fave one in the sidebar. As for Dragon Cave I didn’t get a Valentine Eggs but now I have a Geode (I think the name is…).

As for the site… I translated other tutorials and as soon as I’ve finished with my exam I’m going to finish them, writing more and then making new stuff.

P.S. Another Geode

Snowed in… again…

Monday, February 2 2009 5:57 am, GMT+1h Laura

Yesterday it started to snow a little… Today I woke up and it was all white, again… I’ve really never seen so much snow… I’m going to move the old posts to a subdomain, this way I still have all the old things, maybe the images won’t work but I’m not going to change every link.

Now I’m going to finish the Webmiss area, then I think I’ve imported all the pages ;) and work on some totorial.

Later.
